Challenge #217 - Embossing of any Kind" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well Im sure most of the children have gone back to School today or possibly next week and hopefully it wont be long before you will be able to spend a bit more time crafting without them wanting to join in. This weeks them over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot  is "Embossing of any Kind" and this means either wet embossing with the powders and heat gun, or using the folders to run through your machines, so it couldnt be any easier could it?
As always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.


And as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, but even if you havent used you will still be eligible for 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you. You will find lots of Images, Papers and Printables on their website here "The Paper Shelter" and the money exchange is extremely good so you will find they very reasonable to buy, I hope you enjoy your browse on their website.
For my Image for this challenge I have used this sweet girl


This is called "Cool Student" and as a lot of the older children dont go onto College for another couple of weeks I thought it was appropriate for my older grandchildren who are due to start then. You will find her here, and I printed her as always onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, I then cut her out using a Nestabilitie Labels die and used a fancy one for the mount.
The sentiment was stamped and mounted of a tag die using the same backing card I used for the image.The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of orange card, the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. On top of this I used some of the orange card and ran it through a embossing folder and used a corner chopper to finish of the edges, this was then placed on top of the first mount and the image placed in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
I then created a flower with a Heartfelt die and stamp using a orange inkpad to distress it, this was then layered up and mounted in the top right hand corner, to finish of I used six orange pearls down the left hand side in the top and bottom corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Embossing of any Kind" Challenge.

I then placed my mounted image towards the top almost in the center, and the sentiment which was stamped and then I cut it out with another of the nestabilitie dies and placed this in the bottom right hand corner.

ABC Challenges - "P is for Pretty in Pink"

Good Morning Crafters, I was caught out on the 1st August with my ABC Challenge DT post and this time I have decided to get ahead of scheduling my post, so todays theme over on ABC Challenges Blogspot  is "P is for Pretty in Pink" and we are being sponsored by Marianne Designs.




And here is the card I created for it.


I have used clear stamp HM9470 and stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a large oval die from Marianne designs and inked through the holes around the edge. I did the same with the sentiment that also came from the same die set.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card, the papers are also from Marianne Designs and its a Vintage paper set, I have used three of the papers and layered them up as you can see. I then placed my mounted image towards the left with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
To add embellishiments I used 6 pink pearls in opposite corners and a large butterfly in the top right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "P is for Pretty in Pink" Challenge.

A Card using the new Heartfelt Sparkling Poinsettia Stamps

Good Morning Crafters, well unfortunately as Ive not managed to create a card for this weeks theme over on Facebooks "Sundays with Santa" - Ribbons and Lace but as I had created several cards a couple of weeks ago I hope that it wouldnt be to much a disappointment in uploading this one.
Ive used the Collage stamp by stamping it onto white card then colouring it with my copic pens, I then cut it out around the stamp edge and layered it up onto red card, I also used one of the backing paper designs from the stamp and paper Design Set and layered this also up onto red card.
I used one of the ticket sentiments and layered this also up onto red card.
I hope you like the result, I should also say that my hubby has been trying to update my main desktop machine to Windows 10 and is not having much fun with all the settings so Im having to manage on my backup machine.
